Closet With Shelves Between It!

2 Materials
2 Days
We built a closet between studs in our hallway to accommodate CD's, devices, paper goods, etc....whatever. There was a void space behind closet to allow us to deepen the closet about three more inches due to a bathroom remodel in next room, so took advantage of that to build closet in hallway. Measured to accommodate a door between studs, cut out sheetrock and removed center stud, finished inside with thin white plain paneling, ripped and painted 3/4" pine shelves to fit, drilled holes to fit clips to hold shelves. We also installed a door and trim, and there you have it. (Note: It had been emptied for reorganization and Items on shelves are only placed there to show what can be stored. Originally three shelves were used for CD's.)
Needed shelves for CD's, etc.
Measured to accommodate a door.
Suggested materials:
  • Paneling, pine boards, paint, and support clips   (Home Depot)
  • Door and trim   (Home Depot)
